  • Nintendo Switch Reassures a Remedial Update for Glitch

Nintendo Switch reassures users that the glitch that seemed to be removing playtimes will be remedied with an update

Nintendo Switch is approaching the completion of its first year. This month, the gaming console will be one year old and Nintendo Switch enthusiasts might be expecting big celebrations.

The celebrations were dampened however, when the Nintendo Switch software started to reset the playtimes on the console.

Imagine all those hours put into Zelda, the testaments of the hard hours to pass levels of the game were suddenly disappearing from the display of the Nintendo Switch. It seems like that at the end of the one year, it was a software function to delete the data from last year.

Panic ensued as multitude of users protested and reported the malfunction which Nintendo has reported called a ‘glitch’. They have issued a statement in which they have assured the users that this is not a built-in function but a simple fault.

Nintendo also said that the data for playtimes is being recorded in the background. It will be updated accurately as soon as they upload an update which will recover all the playtime data as well as correct the effects of the glitch in no time.

Adopters noticed that the games which they had started playing from the day one had been reset to 0 for the play time.

They will be waiting for the update anxiously as Nintendo has not confirmed a specific date on which it will be uploaded.
